Oh Hyeon-gyu “The moment I dreamed of”… A dream to advance to Europe comes true wearing a ‘Celtic’ uniform

Oh Hyun-gyu (22) joined the famous Scottish professional football team ‘Celtic’ and greeted the fans.

Oh Hyun-gyu said in an interview with the Celtic club on the 25th, “I came to the club I really wanted to go to. I am happy that the moment I dreamed of came true.”

Celtic, which is based in Glasgow, Scotland, announced on the same day that K League 1 Suwon Samsung striker Oh Hyun-kyu had signed a five-year contract.

Oh Hyun-kyu said, “I’m really excited and happy to come to the city I saw in the movie. It’s really like a dream, so I think the days ahead will be filled with happy things.”

Oh Hyeon-kyu said, “He is very reckless and can fight the opponent’s defender well. He seems to be able to score a lot,” he said, appealing his strength.

And he also revealed his goal, saying, “I want to score a lot here and win the championship together. I want to go to the (European Football Federation) Champions League and climb high.”

Celtic is a team familiar to Korean fans as Ki Sung-yueng (Seoul) played from 2009 to 2012 and Cha Doo-ri, head of the FC Seoul Youth Ganghwa Office, from 2010 to 2012.

Hyungyu Oh said, “Senior Ki Sung-yong and senior Cha Doo-ri are people I have always admired. Ever since I was young, I have been dreaming of watching the players play at Celtic.” 안전놀이터 I’m excited. Like those players, I want to do well and achieve their goals even higher.”

Celtic, which shows a lot of interest in East Asian players, already has six Japanese players, including Kyogo Furuhashi and Daizen Maeda.

They are Oh Hyun-kyu’s colleagues and competitors.

Oh Hyun-gyu said, “As an Asian, I think I will be able to relate to the players. I want to do well just as they succeeded in Europe and distant places.”
